A Slice of the Life of Ueli Steck, Prominent European Speed-Climber

    Ueli Steck, known for being one of, if not the, fastest speed climbers in the world, has a never-ending passion for achieving another claim to success. He is known for trying to recreate Jeff Lowe’s infamous ascent up the north face of the Eiger in Switzerland.

    Over the course of a few weeks, Steck and his friend and cameraman Jonathan Griffith spend time together to explore Steck’s thoughts on climbing, and get footage of his normal training life, high mountain escapades that feature hard mixed and ice climbing.
